I played the drums again this week. I have so much to learn but it’s alot of fun. Our practice time was not long enough for me so I had to practice alot at home, the only thing is that our internet service was going off and on. Of all the weeks for this to happen, but it still worked out.
This morning after battling the internet for 3 days I called the service provider looking for help. The guy was very helpful and got me back on but we had to reboot and reconfigure the router. So my last line to this nice guy, who kept saying ” no worries” was “now this isn’t going to interfere with the other computers in the house?” His answer was no!
Wrong….I was unable to get connected, so I called back, got another guy and explained it all to him. The problem was I wasn’t speaking his computer language and I didn’t know his language, but he wasn’t listening to me either. This is really what I wanted to share. So I kept repeating the situation over again then he would say something in computer lingo and I would say, “I’m sorry, could you say that again?” I ended up just saying ok and thank you, cause I received a call on my cell that my youngest son just threw up in his class. I was off to get him, poor kid how bad was it to throw up in class!!
I made one more attempt to have the internet service to help me….the guy was nice and the end result was he listened and read in between the lines I wasn’t saying nor could explain that well. He fixed my problem and I thanked him for really listening to me.
I would not like having jobs in finance, nor would I like doing their job but it does teach you to listen to people, and explain things in a way that anyone could understand. Oh the lessons that we have to learn in life.
